HelicopterBergen R/C Helicopters › Intrepid Gas - what will I need?

I'm wondering if anyone can supply some sort of a "checklist" of what is needed to build the Intrepid Gas. I'm going to Bergen's shop to pickup my first gas heli next weekend.

What I will be getting:
Bergen Intrepid Gas heli with torque tube tail
Fiberglass canopy
Some type of upgraded muffler

What I already have:
Futaba 148DP PCM Rx with Deans base load antenna
JR Heavy Duty switch
JR 1800 mah Extra Pack 4.8v
401/9253 gyro combo
3 - Futaba 9252 digital servos
3 - Futaba 9202 servos
NHP 680mm Carbon blades

Of the equipment I have above, should I use the 9252 or 9202 servos? What else will I need to complete the heli? I want to purchase it all ahead of time so once I start building, I'll have everything.

I've been researching this for a while and remember reading about fuel filter clunks, air filters, etc. Any help you could offer would be great. A list of what you used to assemble fully would work perfectly.

You should talk to Larry Bergen when you pick it up, he'll walk you through what you need for your type of flying. Might consider the elevator upgrade, the front trans. upgrade, and perhaps a thrust brg. on the main shaft.

Also, you can do a search on here under 'bergen gasser' to read up on things. Also, if you're going to use electric start, you'll need the start shaft pinned. Good luck. The Bergen Gasser is the best helicopter I've ever owned.
